Ashen Grove Farm lay in Wimbledon Park.

Wimbledon Park dates from 1576 and focused on the first Manor House built at Vineyard Hill in 1588, later known as the Elizabethan Manor House. The park was managed as a deer park to provide fresh meat for the Manor of Wimbledon.

By the early 17th century the Park occupied nearly 4oo acres. The Park was dotted with large clumps of trees and small woods where the deer grazed. The eastern part of the estate, was Ashen Grove Farm. (Also known as ‘Wimbledon Park’ farm.)

It was established in 1633 by John Halfhead from Hertfordshire, who cleared a wood there at the time.

The site of the farm lies off of the modern road called Ashen Grove. However, this was before that the name of a wood called Ashen Grove which lay immediately to the north. The name is marked as a small settlement from the 1750 Roque map onwards.

Kensington

Kensington is a district of West London, England within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, located west of Charing Cross.

The focus of the area is Kensington High Street, a busy commercial centre with many shops, typically upmarket. The street was declared London's second best shopping street in February 2005 thanks to its range and number of shops.

The edges of Kensington are not well-defined; in particular, the southern part of Kensington blurs into Chelsea, which has a similar architectural style. To the west, a transition is made across the West London railway line and Earl's Court Road further south into other districts, whilst to the north, the only obvious dividing line is Holland Park Avenue, to the north of which is the similar district of Notting Hill.

Kensington is, in general, an extremely affluent area, a trait that it now shares with its neighbour to the south, Chelsea. The area has some of London's most expensive streets and garden squares.

Kensington is also very densely populated; it forms part of the most densely populated local government district (the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea) in the United Kingdom. This high density is not formed from high-rise buildings; instead, it has come about through the subdivision of large mid-rise Victorian and Georgian terraced houses (generally of some four to six floors) into flats.
